The TSA hounds the hell out of me because of my bionic knee. Straight razors don't appear to be a problem.

A Utah man is facing charges after allegedly bringing a straight edge razor blade on a flight and holding it near a passenger's throat.

The incident comes just weeks after a man brought two box cutters through security and onto a Frontier Airlines flight en route to Tampa.

Merrill Darrell Fackrell, 41, allegedly boarded a JetBlue flight Monday at JFK Airport in New York en route to Salt Lake City. During the flight, Fackrell was in the window seat next to a woman, when he allegedly placed his hand in front of her screen and told her to pause her movie, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Utah. The woman then realized Fackrell was holding what appeared to her as a knife, "inches from her skin at her throat/neck area," the release said.

This Cob's humble opinion? San Francisco doesn't need killer police robots. It needs common sense criminal statutes, Dirty Harry style policing and non-lenient prosecution. But, that's just me.

Once upon a time, the concept of police robots authorized to use deadly force was the stuff of science fiction. There is, after all, a beloved film literally called RoboCop that spawned several sequels and a 2014 remake. But, as is the case with so many cautionary tales and dystopian narrative, what was once science fiction is now science fact. And if you find that just a bit unsettling, you’re not alone.

As The Guardian reports, San Francisco is the latest city in the U.S. to explore the idea of robots capable of using lethal force. At issue is a proposal from the city’s police department surrounding a number of robots – and clarifying what those robots should and should not be permitted to do.

Somersaults and cliffs, what can go wrong? Genius Award Winner.

A tourist in Bali has survived a massive cliffside fall after attempting a somersault.

The man had been posing for photos at the edge of the cliff while in Nusa Penida before attempting a flip and landing some 130 feet below.

Police said a tour guide was taking photos of the man at the popular tourist destination before his stunt backfired.

Local media reported that emergency services were called but were hindered by the dangerous terrain surrounding the cliff.

Nusa Penida Search and Rescue Alert Unit said operators attempted reaching the man by boat but were blocked by waves.

Well done Officer Me'Atia Sanderson. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Officer Me'Atia Sanderson with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was the first to arrive at the scene, the sheriff's office said. She was alerted that the infant was still in the water.

"Police Officers across this country report to work each and everyday to protect and serve their communities. They show up each day knowing they will be faced with unimaginable challenges and dangers; yet they do not know what those challenges or dangers will be or how they will present themselves," the sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post.

"Sanderson, who does not know how to swim herself, without a second's hesitation, entered the pond to retrieve the child and performed CPR until she was relieved by other responding officers."
